Northern Digitals BLAB #8


A monthly meetup where digital creatives from in and around Manchester can get away from their screens and talk to other digital creatives.

Date: August 18th 2011
Time: 6pm
Location: The Deaf Institute, Grosvenor Street, Manchester, M1 7EH
Price: Tickets are sold out but there is a waiting list



We all talk to each other via, email, iChat, messenger, twitter, blip, text, mobile, the list is endless. So here's an idea, why don't we get together on the first Thursday of every month, in a bar, face to face and talk about, well, what ever you want really. You can make new contacts, organise collaborations, land yourself some freelance work, land yourself a job, hit on the next big idea or just have a drink before you go home.

Speakers include Ian Wharton and Studio Output.
